This is the end of Sourceforge. RIP

Who still uses sourceforge in 2015?
Serious question?

It was outmoded by github and the developer's own project websites.

>> No.48466941

nothing of value was lost.

botnet meme aside, it's pretty good. I just use it as a flash player these days.

>> No.48466953

FileZilla does. They don't even have an official mirror.

>> No.48466988

That's perfectly understandable though. Filezilla has gone completely fucked with shit it is including.

>> No.48466989

That's what you get for using free software.

I only ever went there to find a link to a projects irc channel or some other info anyways.

It's still there though.

sourceforge.net right?

>> No.48467220

Quit being such a pussy and download it. It's just a warning that the installer might change your homepage or might offer some software you don't like.

The warning is from google who allow big fake 'download' buttons that lead to ads.

When I tried to download it, Chrome said the file was malicious and blocked it. I just used Ninite instead.

Isn't 7-zip still hosted on SourceForge?

Also certain game console emulators still put their shit on SF.

>> No.48467371

7-zip's main website and downloads seem to be self-hosted.

>having a google filter

>> No.48467727

did you use your Ask.com toolbar to figure out how to turn your filter off?

>> No.48467745

Nope, I disabled my filter since I don't need it on a linux machine

Is there any overhead for having a filter running?

Filezilla is probably the best and most well known ftp client out there.
What better proprietary ftp client is there?

>> No.48467970


>> No.48467987

I don't know about proprietary clients but if you want a free Windows FTP client you should give WinSCP a try.

>most packages for programs are downloaded by package managers from sourceforge

>> No.48468463

I've never downloaded anything for linux from sourceforge because why not just use your package manager. I have downloaded .exe's to get windows versions of FOSS software from sourceforge, though. I cosidered it probably more trustworthy than some I'm feeling lucky google result.
Windows loses again.

>> No.48468544

Wake me up when it says the same thing about java.com

>> No.48468565

Dude, just set the alarm on your ask toolbar

>> No.48468587

What kind of package manager would that be?

>> No.48468595

not him, but gentoo's portage can have sourceforge links

>> No.48468630

nvm, I just checked. Looks like it doesn't
Apparently Filezilla and Gimp have their own hosts

nvm that last nvm

The ebuild states that filezilla uses sourceforge.
no ask toolbar tho

Why not just use Chromium? I honestly don't see the point in using Chrome, especially if you know about its malicious features.
It's like you're asked "Would you like us to add a botnet feature to your browser?" and you choose yes.
By changing to Chromium you're not making sacrifice of any kind but rather a favor for yourself
Why do you still use Chrome?
